<strong>CHARLESTON, MYRTLE BEACH, AND COASTAL SOUTH CAROLINA</strong>
Airfares to Myrtle Beach are down 33% on average compared to last fall, says Melisse Hinkle of Cheapflights.com, and hotel rates this season are, on average, down more than 30% compared to summer, according to data from the hotel site Trivago. About 100 miles down the coast, <a href="http://www.cntraveler.com/readers-choice-awards/united-states/top-10-cities-usa?mbid=synd_huffpotravel" target="_hplink">Condé Nast Traveler readers' favorite city in the U.S.</a>, Charleston, is also "a deal destination in the making," Hinkle says, thanks to an airport expansion in the works and increased low-cost airline service. The draws go beyond affordable airfares, though, with great hotels in Charleston like <a href="http://www.cntraveler.com/hotels/north-america/united-states/restoration-on-king-charleston-charleston-south-carolina?mbid=synd_huffpotravel" target="_hplink">Restoration on King </a>and <a href="http://www.cntraveler.com/hotels/north-america/united-states/harbourview-inn-charleston-charleston-south-carolina?mbid=synd_huffpotravel" target="_hplink">HarbourView Inn</a>. To eat? Atlanta Journal-Constitution restaurant critic John Kessler likes The Ordinary, on Upper King, "just north of the well-touristed city center."
